"We find conflict in so many places today, within ourselves, in relationships, between countries, and even in places we associate with peace, like the Himalayas. What is the solution? The Buddha teaches that violence leads to more violence. So how can we be actively engaged in change, yet not caught in patterns that perpetuate suffering? Meditation can create a working basis for changing the fundamental causes of suffering and moving toward natural liberation."
- Lama Tsultrim


LAMA TSULTRIM ALLIONE, M.A., a former Tibetan Buddhist nun (ordained in 1970 by the 16th Karmapa), is the author of the Classic book Women of Wisdom, and the National Bestseller Feeding Your Demons: Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict, (2008, Little Brown & Co); a process for connecting the knowledge of Tibetan Buddhism with the modern psyche, addressing major cultural issues and the roots of suffering.

Lama Tsultrim has been teaching internationally for more than thirty years and is the founder of Tara Mandala, a retreat center in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. As the emanation of Machig Labdron, (recognized by Karma Nyton Kunkhyab Chokyi Dorje) she is considered a profound and lucid teacher, bringing together psychological and spiritual insights.
